You heard about this tragic event involving a firefighter on Tuesday, right?
No, he didn't fall of a burning building.
During an Indians/Rangers baseball game, he tried to snag a foul ball and fell over the upper deck railing, and fell 30 feet onto the seats below him (my first question is...when you're at the railing, aren't you aware of how dangerous that can be?)
He injured four fans below him, and broke his ankle and got a skull fracture, but is on his way to recovery.
When I saw the video footage of the umpire and players reacting to this, I knew it must've been horrific.
And you know what my very next thought was? And this is the sick part.
I thought to myself, "That dude is going to be lucky if her survives. You know the team is going to give him an autographed baseball and some other cool memorabilia."
I can't believe I had the thought, but I did.
(on a side note: as I sat down to write this blog, I hear on Extra that they gave him the foul ball he was after)
